Oregon cascades orienteering klubb. But there are a few listed for this area. Just give it a google. I haven't personally tried any. I just use my map and compass for backcountry travel. Just got a GPS and found out the next joke is you have to buy mapping software to make it really work for you.
Class is put on by a hiking group in Salem. The Chemeketans put it on every spring. We had so many people this year we had two classes. REI has classes scheduled this month check each stores event schedule for a class near you.
Sounds like fun. I however,. Am helping lead a navigation class. That means map and compass and GPS and how to effectively use them. It's a great class for inexperienced and experienced as well given by the Chemeketans of Salem. Sorry I got to pass.
I know alot of you are wondering what it would be like to meet other spark members. I am telling you its the best. I am one of the leaders of the Sparkin Hood to coast team. We are having meeting this Saturday at champoeg park for a race/walk.
there is an organized race and walk.
If you are interested in meeting other Sparkers and do a race or a walk come join us. We would love to meet more from the Portland/Vancouver area. We will have 9-10 already there.
Here is the link for the information about the race. If you are just interested in meeting some other sparkers come cheer us on. I don't think all of our group is running or walking.
